I have been guilty of trying to tweak something that needed a major overhaul. After a lot of effort and resources making minor adjustments here and there, I usually end up with slightly more effective and yet still unsatisfactory results. Yes there might be some change, even some forward progress, but not enough to make a difference.
I don’t know your circumstances, but I’m almost certain that there’s an area of your life, your business, or ministry that is in desperate need of a complete overhaul right now and all you are doing are minor tweaks. I understand the fear of the disruption a bold course of action might cause. I get the fact that the consequences of a difficult move might be more than you have bargain for. They usually are.
I also know that when we fail to do the difficult thing, we fail, period. If I have learned anything in life is that “tweaking” something that’s not working is an expensive game that can costs us our health, our relationships and even our business. It’s choosing the appearance of leadership instead of paying the price true leadership. But with it comes resolution, forward momentum, a new lease on life, a different future.
What ares of your life are you tweaking into failure? What needs an overhaul?
